This was our first time to Bangkok. Took a bus from Pattaya to Bangkok , 2- hour ride. There are buses that go to Bangkok every thirty minutes. This was the last leg of our trip that started from Phnom Penh.
Check our whole itinerary here: Phnom Penh Trip- Bangkok
We checked into some cheap around Pratunam (a famous shopping district in Bangkok) and Went to Baiyon Hotel Revolving Observatory Deck, it was fun! This is the tallest hotel tower in Thailand.
We Paid 300baht per person to go up includes a 1 drink in their music and bar located in 83rd floor. I love the view, the breeze and the experience up there. Felt that my Bangkok trip was complete even though I’m only there for 24 hours.
We prayed there and had an impromptu date in their bar and music lounge.
Shopped around at Pratunam area till late night.
We purposely came around 5ish to see the view in day time and to wait till we can see the night view.
Beautiful Bangkok at Night in 83rd Floor of Baiyoke Sky Hotel.
Here’s photo of our rings (where my blog name came from) since we are celebrating our 3rd Year Anniversary as husband and wife☺️
Out side Baiyoke Hotel is a huge, lovely night market.
Woke up early had our breakfast and headed to chatuchak market, do not use Tuk Tuk, take mrt or metered taxi, Tuk Tuk drivers will bring you to a jewelry store or dvd etc and will let you buy. We say no to this Tuk Tuk driver whom we hire to bring us to Chatuchak market and he let us go down from him Tuk Tuk after few minutes of him convincing us to go to these shops. Scammers around, plenty of them. Be careful!
So we decided to us the BTS Sky train instead. It’s also a good experience for us. Just ask around and I’m sure you’ll figure it out too. From Ratchathewi station go to MoChit station and walk a bit.
You need to pass by on this bridge to the market!
On the way to Chatuchak on the side roads you can find a lot of vendors standing sitting and what not. This market is just open during weekends Friday Saturday and Sunday! So if you are planning to visit make sure it’s on weekends.
Chatuchak market, oh man, I just found the market of my own heart in Thailand. A lot of cute, local, unique, artsy things! From clothes to bags, accessories, paintings name it.
This is much cooler than Benh Than Market of Ho Chi Minh and the vendors were not aggressive as in HCM. Enjoyed my time here! Got myself a nice embroidered bag and some accessories.Win!
Oh it’s hot and we’re tired, time for a cold thai dessert that I don’t even know the name! My heart was happy as much as my tummy!
And of course Pad Thai (my favourite) before going back home!
Above photo was Bangkok Airport decoration. Time to go back home!
See you again Bangkok!
